Les Saisons in Meaux, France by Arte Charpentier Architectes

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Article source: v2com

Situated just outside the town of Meaux, the shopping centre can be accessed via three major roads and thus enjoys exceptional accessibility.

The project drew on the elements of the surrounding area to create a diversified landscape: it fits with the colorful fields of geometrically apportioned agricultural land, the winding meanders of the Ourcq Canal and the buildings of various shapes and sizes to create a fragmented and diversified landscape.

MÉNAGE À TROIS in Paris, France by Tomas Ghisellini Architetti

The new (rediscovered) wings of the Hôtel de Galliffet

Mirror reflection: strategy of lightness

The new architectural wings of the Hôtel de Galliffet will be enigmatic and surprising appearances.

Logics of composition, materials and formal repertoire push the architectural bodies towards an expressive vocabulary for which the terms of lightness and permeability prevail.

The strategy of inclusion aims to give the new buildings a kind of perceptive dematerialization; this way proceeding the partial clogging of the courts will assume a character of agreement and co-operation rather than imposition.

801 West Lafayette Blvd. Parking Garage in Detroit, Michigan by Albert Kahn and Associates

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

Article source: LarsonO’Brien

Banker Wire recently collaborated with architects in Detroit to deliver a custom metal mesh solution for the renovation and historical preservation of a more than 90-year-old parking garage in the heart of the city.

Originally built in 1924, the parking garage at 801 West Lafayette Blvd. was one of two buildings on the Detroit News complex – the other being the home of the namesake newspaper. The garage was constructed for Detroit News employees and delivery vehicles. In 2014, Bedrock Management bought both buildings to serve Bedrock employees and other corporate tenants. Renovations began immediately with the preservation of their historic design elements top-of-mind.

Three interventions make up the proposal:

  1. Marinadour. A dense complex of dwellings on top of a podium of shops and car parks.
  2. The Park generated by reorganizing circulation and segregating the traffic above from pedestrians, with the massive presence of vegetation between the footpaths.
  3. Rivadour. A continuous urban block that follows the river before breaking off towards the city. Permeable on the ground floor.
